TempCache Latest Stable Version License Monthly Downloads

A simple PHP caching class that uses the temporary files (/tmp/) folder of a Linux distribution.

Main caching library of Biscuit Link framework.

Simple to Use

The class has been written to be dead easy to use and should be familiar to anyone who has used any caching before. However, beware that the main aim of this cache is not to be the fastest caching mechanism out there, but to simplify the lives of those who just want to have a simple caching system in place to avoid hitting API limits, although from my experience it is pretty fast!

Storing (put)

// $expire is time in seconds for validity.

TempCache::put($key, $value, $expire);

Retrieving (get)

TempCache::get($key);

Deleting (remove)

TempCache::remove($key);

Features

  • No need to install extra plugins or PHP modules.
  • Works out of the box. (As long as your web server user has enough privileges).
  • Avoid hitting those API limits set by other websites.

Getting Started

Warning: You need PHP >= 5.3 to use TempCache.

Using Composer

{
	"require": {
		"cajogos/php-temp-cache": "1.1"
	}
}

Download and use

The class is self-contained so you can use it in any project you already have by using:

require_once 'classes/TempCache.php';

use Cajogos\TempCache as TempCache;
